Yummy Goodness

So I made mention on facebook to the best roll recipe I've ever had and I thought I'd share it here since I couldn't leave it as an update on facebook :) This recipe was given to me by a friend in Albuquerque and it's originally from our old Bishop's wife Jeni.

It was a good thing I made these rolls for someone else and they didn't stick around my house. Otherwise I would have eaten them all by now.
**Notice the slim fast in the back ground. I thought that was pretty ironic! Those rolls would have been much yummier, hence, the reason for the slim fast in the first place :)

You can make the recipe as follows or you can take the easy route like I do and throw all the ingredients in the bread maker and set it to the dough setting. I'm not one for kneading and my bread maker makes the best dough, so why not! Hope you enjoy.

Jeni’s Rolls

· 1 cup warm water
· 1 Tablespoon quick rising yeast
· 1 Tablespoon sugar

Combine above ingredients and set aside.

· 3 eggs
· ½ cup sugar
· ½ cup melted butter or margarine

Mix the eggs and sugar. Add the melted butter and yeast mixture. Mix until combined.

· 4 cups flour
· ¾ tsp. salt

Add the flour and salt. Knead. Put a dishtowel over the bowl and let rise in a warm place for 1 ½ hours or until doubled.

Knead again adding ½-1 cup additional flour (add the flour until dough stops sticking to the sides of the mixing bowl. No more then 1 cup.)
Divide into two balls of dough and roll each ball into a large circle. Cut circles into fourths—like a pie. Cut each fourth into three equal triangles. You will have 12 triangles. Roll each triangle from the big end to the point into a crescent roll.

Spray two cookie sheets with cooking spray. Put a dozen rolls on each cookie sheet. Gently cover with kitchen towels and let rise in a warm place for 1 ½ hours more or until rolls double in size.

Bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes or until golden. Brush with melted butter or margarine.

I LOVE these rolls, and I used to make them all the time in ABQ (I made them pull-apart instead of crescent), but when I tried to make them in Auburn, I don't know if it was the elevation or the humidity or both, but they were inedible. So much so that when I put them out for the woodland creatures to enjoy (since my family wouldn't eat them), even they wouldn't touch them!

I need to try this recipe again. I tried this a few years ago but they didn’t turnout for me. It’s really no surprise though, because NOTHING to do with making bread ever turns out for me ; ) *note to self, GET a bread maker!
